How it works
The Cinevator®DTP receives film-data in real time through an SDI link or DVI input. Based on the film data vailable, printing jobs are prepared on a job preparation work station (a normal Desktop PC that is connected to the Cinevator). Subtitle files are easily loaded through the job preparation work station. Sound is recorded from either Dolby CA-10R (via MO disk), DTS time code generator or embedded sound on a Disk Recorder or VTR. Remote Disk Recorders or VTR’s are controlled by the Cinevator via standard RS-422 protocols. Once established, printing jobs are displayed to the operator on the LCD touch screen. The operator needs only to select the job to be printed after he has loaded and laced the film. After pressing “Start” the Cinevator runs on its own until the selected job is completed. During exposure of film a self calibrating function is active, continuously making sure that brightness and colour balance from the LED light source are always kept at the intended values.
